Veteran guitarist of Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page has shared the photo of himself with legendary bass player Jaco Pastorius on Instagram.

He also remembered the details of his secret jam with former AC/DC drummer Chris Slade and Jaco Pastorius. Here’s the story:

“#OnThisDay in 1985, I went to see Jaco Pastorius at The Lone Star Café in New York. ⠀⠀

Jaco was accompanied by a drummer he’d accessed from the The Village Voice Musician’s Column. Needless to say, this drummer from the small ads was having a bit of a problem keeping up with the powerhouse Jaco Pastorius, who was illustrating the complete textbook to the various approaches of electric bass.
⠀⠀
Jaco invited me up and I had a jam with him but more importantly, Chris Slade, The Firm’s drummer also got up to jam, relegating the current drummer to a table in the club.

After about four numbers, I returned to our table to witness a tremendous synergy and understanding of Jaco’s playing from Chris who remained for the rest of the set. That night I got to understand what an experienced and passionate drummer Chris Slade could be.
⠀⠀
And also what a monster of a player Jaco Pastorius was.”
